So happy I bought it!
By Mary Claire Becan
I am not an experience photographer. In fact, the purchase of this camera marks the beginning of my amateur photography career. I did some research and actually found a couple of lists of the best DSLR cameras for beginner photographers and this seemed to be everyone's favorite - a good camera at a reasonable price. I wanted something that I could learn on and didn't want to spend a fortune. So when I saw that this was refurbished and I could save some money, I went for it. I appreciated that the refurbished goods were endorsed by Amazon. The camera is GREAT! It's been really fun and easy to operate and I've taken some beautiful shots. I'm excited to be learning and really happy I made this decision!

A somewhat easy camera for beginners to dSLR - my refurbished camera came with a shutter count of only ~22~
By Yarii (cat mom)
I've been a camera "addict" for years. Mostly point & shoot cameras, although I did spring for a Nikon 1 S2 a couple years ago that I was very happy with. I take a lot of pet pictures, and Nikon, Sony and Panasonic seem to do the best job with cats and dogs.
I was afraid of a dSLR camera. I knew manual settings but the thought of a dSLR camera brought out the fear in me. After reading many reviews both here and other sites, I decided to go with this camera since it's rated one of the best for beginners to dSLR shooting.
There's a definite learning curve when switching from a P&S camera to this. The guide on the mode dial helps, but I highly recommend doing a search for "Tom's Guide Nikon D3300" on the web. Tom is immensely helpful for setting up this camera for the best possible shots.
>>> Photo Quality: Excellent once you learn the proper settings - although you CAN keep this on AUTO and use it just like a point & shoot camera - your photos will be much better than any P&S camera can do, but once you learn how to tweek settings for the best shot, you'll no longer want to keep the dial on AUTO
>>> Battery Life: Excellent
>>> Lens: The included 18-55mm lens is good for most shots I'll be taking, but I plan on buying just one other lens for great portraits - this one: Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G Lens with Auto Focus for Nikon DSLR Cameras
>>> Camera Weight: Lighter than most dSLR's, but still much heavier and larger than a point & shoot camera
Memory Card: Yes, you will need one. Opt for one that's a Class 10 and fast....this SDHC card works fine: SanDisk 32GB Ultra Class 10 SDHC UHS-I Memory Card Up to 80MB, Grey/Black (SDSDUNC-032G-GN6IN)
>>> Video: Yes, and this camera does great quality video, too.
So, should you buy this Nikon-refurbished camera or a brand-spanking new one? My camera came with a shutter count of only 22. Whoever bought this before me took only 22 photos before deciding to return it. Nikon then sent it through a refurbishing process before putting the camera back out for sale. I have a keen eye for finding defects and there is not one tiny scratch, scuff or ding on this camera, the LCD screen included. It's absolutely perfect.
It came with USB cable, audio/video cable, the standard lens with both front and back caps, the Nikon lens cap, genuine Nikon camera neck strap, genuine Nikon charger, and genuine Nikon battery.
The only thing you don't get that a brand-new Nikon D3300 provides is the original box. They packaged this refurb in a generic white box with a Nikon label.

LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS> EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED. Been using it for about 1.5 month now, only as a hobbyist so not like everyday. Takes great pictures, took me a little to learn the manual mode but preset functions are great. Replaced my cannon powershot and I love it. I was worried I would miss cannon since that is the only thing i've ever owned but I am very happy with this little nikon.
